Detroit-headquartered consulting firm Giffels Webster has named Chris Asiala as the company’s newest partner.

Asiala is the survey manager of all global positioning system (GPS) applications and high-definition 3D laser scanning at Giffels Webster and has more than 20 years of experience.

 “Over the last 20 years, Chris has become an integral part of our team, and his knowledge and passion for surveying has helped us complete successful projects that improve quality of life in southeast Michigan,” says Scott Clein, president and partner at Giffels Webster. “Chris will continue to help us integrate new technologies to remain leaders in surveying services in the industry.”

Asiala has worked on using Giffels Webster’s GPS and 3D scanning to create more informative field surveys and survey efforts for a number of redevelopment projects in Detroit.

He is a member of the Peer Review Board for the Oakland and Macomb County Remonumentation Programs and formerly on the board of directors for the Michigan Society of Professional Surveyors Southeast Chapter.
